The work is based on an original story by the original creator and features a different production team. This run will have Tomokazu Tokoro directing based on the series composition by Yuniko Ayana who is also working on the scripts with Yuuichiro Kido. Keigo Sasaki returns as character design while Tomoko Sudou has joined as the chief animation director.

The first season of the series was directed by Tensai Okamura for A-1 Pictures with Shotaro Suga handling the composition while Keigo Sasaki handled the character designs for it as well as serving as chief animation director.

The series cast includes Yuuki Kaji as Meliodas, Sora Amamiya as Elizabeth, Jun Fukuyama as King, Misaki Kuno as Hawk and Mamoru Miyano as Gilthunder so far.

The manga is created by Nakaba Suzuki with sixteen volumes in print so far and over three million copies in circulation total. Working in a similar vein as a few other properties of this nature, the manga has done the crossover gig with Fairy Tail before and you can imagine seeing that pop up in anime form as well as a special to promote it. The manga series began in 2012 and Kodansha Comics is bringing the series out this year for North American fans in print while Crunchyroll has the digital chapters being published on their site.

Plot concept: When they were accused of trying to overthrow the monarchy, the feared warriors the Seven Deadly Sins were sent into exile. Princess Elizabeth discovers the truth – the Sins were framed by the king’s guard, the Holy Knights – too late to prevent them from assassinating her father and seizing the throne!
